This race will be well marked and mostly follow the Bull Run - Occoquan Trail (aka the Blue Trail). A few short side trails will be added as well, mainly to connect the Blue Trail with the staging area at each park. All four of these parks are located along the banks of the historic Bull Run and Occoquan Reservoir and they have some of the most beautiful and remote feeling terrain in Fairfax County, Virginia, only 30 minutes outside of Washington D.C. Sightings of deer, beaver, turkey, osprey and great blue heron are not uncommon.
